|Faculty:||Faculty of Science|
|Degree:||Bachelor; Co-op; Honours|
|Field of Study:||Chemistry, General
|Description:||The Honours Chemistry program consists of four options: a core and three specializations. The core option consists of a specified set of basic requirements but otherwise allows a wide choice of other courses, including those from outside the Faculty of Science. The opportunity is therefore available for interdisciplinary studies, possibly leading to a Minor in another subject. Students may also wish to follow one of several specializations which are more appropriate for graduate studies in Chemistry or Biochemistry.
Enrolment in this co-op program is limited. Selection is based on academic achievement and an interview but requires, as a minimum, submission of the on-line application by the stated deadline, and completion of Level II Honours Chemistry with a Cumulative Average of at least 6.0. Information about the program and the selection procedure may be obtained from Science Career and Cooperative Education.
